Year's catchup--2013

So, per Loo's and Roo's request, I have decided to catchup on my blog.  I will separate it into two posts.  2013 happenings and Quilts.

This blog is what happened in 2013. 

Roo got married!  Wahoo!  Here is a photo.  Ma made her dress!

And here are the kiddy poos:

And E looking shocked that the bouquet is broken after she systematically snapped off each rose.

And the whole family.  Thanks to Eliza B. for the photos.
So, that was very exciting.  We had everybody around for a few days of craziness & fun!  Fun fact, Roo's husband has the same name as Loo's husband, who has the same name as Pa.

While here all the nieces & nephews got rides on the 4 wheeler with Gramps, aka Pa.

They also did things with Gran, but the photos aren't as fun.

And here is a photo of newlyweds, with an awesome lamp that FarmerBoy made them.

After Roo's wedding in August things settle back down, kind of.  We got two new puppies just before the wedding.  They are mutts (Previous dog, Maggie, sadly met her death by car in February.)  We were all very sad.  Anyway, the two new puppies are sisters, May & June.  Pa and I each have an undivided 1/2 interest in each dog.  Though he chooses the one who causes the least problems for his dog (this changes based on the day).  O.k.  here are the photos taken today:
June on the left front and May behind

And here is a photo of Zephyr on New Year's eve sharing my new blanket that Ma made me.
Our cat Tabby also died this year.  She was 20 years old.  In cat years that is really old.

In October I went to visit my sister Da in Montana for her birthday.  On her birthday, we ventured into South Dakota and went to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Sturgis.

We had a lot of fun being together.  Also in October, Ma, Pa, Uncle D and Aunt C went to visit Aunt C in Texas.  I thought that some of the relatives would enjoy seeing a photo.  For some reason, Uncle D is out of focus in all of the pictures.

That pretty much finishes out the year for me.  I'm just getting into my busy time at work again, but will be vacationing with all of the Single Greathouses next month.
